Where You Don't Know

We talk a lot about call and calling in the life of the church. We talk a lot about finding your call or what God is calling you to do....but what happens when our lives and situations shift and we are no longer able to do what we have been called to in the past?

Join us for a conversation about how to find the possibilities and promise of call in the midst of changes in our lives and circumstances.

Out of Chaos

It seems that our culture has perfected the art of pushing us to perfection, or at least presenting the image of perfection. But the reality is that we are imperfect people living in an imperfect world. 

What does that mean for us in the church, and what does it mean for us as people of faith? And what role does our baptism play in all of that?

Join us as we explore what it means to be living as an imperfect person of faith in the world that we live in today.

Overcoming Darkness

The prologue to the Gospel of John provides a glimpse into John's claims about who Jesus is, and what that means for those who would trust in him.

Join us as we explore what his statements about Jesus mean for us as people of faith living long after the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how they can help us find hope in the world that we live in today.

Also, check out our new audio postings of sermons. They're also live as a podcast on iTunes...Subscribe to have weekly sermons and scripture delivered automatically to your computer or mobile device!

Calling Out For Help

We don't talk about it, other than to tell people to "get over it" or "cheer up". We don't address it in church, other than to remind people that they should just have faith. 
These responses are inadequate, dangerous, and damaging. 

And so, on Sunday, we tackled issues of stress, worry, depression and anxiety in connection with the reading from Matthew (14:22-33) and the story of Peter and the storm that almost sank him. 
Today, we are reminded, once again, of how strong those storms that we face can be. Friends, if you are being battered by the storm, if you are sinking in the water...please know that you are loved, that you are not alone, and that help is available. 
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-TALK.

Relationship at SHPC: The Tie that Binds

The Second of Four in our Relationship Series at SHPC...examining what it is that we find in this place together. It was communion Sunday, so a bit shorter on the manuscript, but, as with last week's, Pastor Leanne found a groove and expanded and fleshed out some pieces a little bit more in person. 

So, I guess you could call this a glimpse into what we talked about on Sunday! :-)
